Conference Overview

In April 2006 the Ohio University Institute for Applied and Professional Ethics and the E. W. Scripps School of Journalism will host Blogging and Online Journalism: New Media, New Challenges, New Ethics (BOJ).

BOJ will provide an opportunity for a small group of select students to join forces with leading figures in journalism and media ethics for an intimate, in-depth exploration of one of the most interesting and dynamic areas in applied ethics.

Half conference and half workshop, BOJ is split into two sections. Each includes an introductory public lecture (see keynotes on left), a public discussion of topic by a panel of experts (see panels on left), and student workshops (see workshops on left). During the workshops, student participants will present original work for discussion by their peers and by the invited panelists.

Details on BOJ speakers and participants and on their topics are available in the STUDENT CONFERENCE menu to the left.
